De Ommegang

16 Sep

Every year in July something strange happens in Brussels.. for one, there is a medieval village at the Sablon square and for another, a huge procession, play, representation depicting the arrival of the Emperor, Charles the fifth! I think you have to have some kind of noble ancestry to act the nobility bit. Nonetheless, much fun is to be had by just looking on, at a spot of jousting, the procession of horses gathered together, people practising their crossbow skills. You could even be imprisoned in the stocks, voluntarily of course, otherwise just grab a beer and if weather permits, soak up the atmosphere!
